Mondays are usually the start of my work week, but on this particular Monday I’m enjoying vacation vibes, kind of. My time off is mainly due to childcare needs but I’ll be escaping for a few days at the end of the week.
Honestly, much as I’d love an extended vacation, just having time to be around the house, catching up on life things, baking cookies (new snickerdoodle recipe coming soon!) and making bread just for the fun of it is vacation enough from the commute and work I usually do in the test kitchen.
In addition to my almost full-time job at Marley Spoon, I’m also an expert for The Spruce Eats. This means my days off during the week are usually filled with planning, developing, and shooting recipes for their website. A slew of older projects are finally publishing, and I’m excited to share them with you.
First up, are these applesauce cookies I made a couple of months ago. A word of advice, or maybe warning: they are quite addictive, and very easy to make, which means breaking the habit of eating them will be hard once you start.
If, like me, you’ve got hoards of homemade applesauce in the basement, this is a yummy way to use it up. Of course store-bought applesauce works, too! And if you’ve never made applesauce but curious to give it a try, my recipe for it is here.
p.s. You can find the recipe for the Applesauce Cookies here with step-by-step photos. If you love the recipe or make them, please give them a rating on The Spruce Eats. -xoxo
